Join us in the summer of 2014, as we visit the Peoples Republic of China.

The third largest country in the world with the largest population, China is home to the oldest continuous civilization on earth. Its unique culture and customs can be traced back to the earliest origins of mankind.

With its grand, bio-diverse countryside including the fertile basin of the Yellow and Yangtze River to the heights of Mt. Everest along the Nepalese border, China gives us the giant panda, bamboo forests, the mystical legend of the Chinese dragon, the Great Wall of China, the great dynasties of the imperial age, a rich culture in the arts, a great economic power and the largest exporter and importer of goods in the world today.

Together, letís explore the wonders of China, its ancient past and powerful present.
Huan ying!
